From Oct. 2015 to Mar. 2018, club meetings were in the afternoon instead of the evening, but have now returned to the evening, to encourage more participation. Please let us know if you are interested in chess instruction, tournaments or other activities. No regular meetings on August 2, 9 or 16.
Tournaments See calendar for weekend tournaments, which typically have both novice and U.S. Chess rated sections. About three times per year, there will also be rated tournaments, played at one game per week, at consecutive regularly scheduled club meetings.
Misc. The CENTRAL OREGON CHESS CLUB is open to anyone in the community who wishes to participate. Bring your own chess set and clock. See above for tournaments. When a tournament is not in progress, club meetings are very informal, and chess instruction/tutoring can be arranged.
